Please describe your company and your position there.
I am the Founder of a conference and community for 7 to 9 figure SaaS, Ecom, and Media business owners.
For what projects/services did your company hire NineTwoThree Digital Ventures, and what were your goals?
We wanted to move off of Slack and Facebook groups to a custom community app which we own and control and has the features we need to better engage our online community.
How did you select this vendor and what were the deciding factors?
I had an immediate connection with Andrew, the founder, when we were originally introduced from a mutual friend. He and his company were very enthusiastic and brought several ideas to the table on how to execute the app.
Describe the scope of work in detail, including the project steps, key deliverables, and technologies used.
The team started by listending carefully to my vision for how the app would works. We refined these ideas to a "v1" feature set. Andrew and his team then designed and built a UI prototype which we refined and would later be used to code the app.
How many resources from the vendor's team worked with you, and what were their positions?
I worked with 5 team members. These included a product manager, a technical lead and two designer/developers.
Can you share any measurable outcomes of the project or general feedback about the deliverables?
We've been able to leverage the work we did with the team to engage our community and "show them" rather than tell them. This has translated into substantial risk reduction in the decision if end users actually wanted what we built.
Describe their project management style, including communication tools and timeliness.
The project management style included excellent communication through a regular meeting cadence in addition to slack/email collaboration. We felt like we had a pulse on progress and the team came to every meeting with results they could show us.
What did you find most impressive or unique about this company?
I was most impressed at the team's ability to take a rather nebulous vision in my head and actually translate it to a practical functional system taking into account multiple platform, security, engagment, etc. needs.
Are there any areas for improvement or something they could have done differently?
Nothing comes to mind.
